It is also available as a (very small) xdelta file.

The main purpose of this release was to fix some bugs in b9.

Just like other times UBCD V5.0b10 can be downloaded via http server at http://linuxfreedom.com

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the red link.

.
Download the xdelta patch file and save it in the same folder as ubcd50b9.iso
Copy xdelta.exe also to this folder
Open the command prompt (cmd.exe) and type the following:

Code: Select all

cd "C:\Path\to\directory\of the ubcd50b9 iso\"     (e.g.: cd "C:\")
xdelta patch ubcd50b9tob10.xdelta ubcd50b9.iso ubcd50b10.iso
The md5sum of ubcd50b10.iso is d80862d559ffb2bebf0f892412d0f3ee.

I changed the torrent link to the right location in Victors post.

### Right File

Yes for everyone...I have the right file uploaded to the server at http://linuxfreedom.com. I confirm that ubcd50b10.iso is the file.

I'd also like to confirm that even though Victor made type above, the torrent that is seeding is infact the ubcd50b10.iso and not b9 as stated above.

I don't see any obvious flaws.

I did hear a request from someone, it might be something to consider: try to keep the size ≤210MB. It's now only just over at 212MB, at 210MB it can be burned on a mini CD-R without overburning.

I do however understand it's not desired to restrict the UBCD to such a size, but since it's only 2MB over it might be possible to find something so this release can still be squeezed on a mini CD-R. Alternatives are also becoming more common (mini DVD, USB memory) so soon the 210MB shouldn't be an issue anymore.

And thanks for adding the more recent DBAN.

I have to disappoint you. A size below 210 MiB wouldn't be possible.
Current Parted Magic (v3.4) is 52 MiB. Parted Magic v3.5 will be 74 MiB.
If you edit the UBCD iso and remove the antivirus definition files in /pmagic/pmodules/, you can get a size below 210 MiB (if you have a working internet connection when running Parted Magic, you can download the last definitions before scanning).

You can easily get a 512mb flash drive for ≤$3 bucks almost anywhere...And Im sure you could get a 256mb even cheaper off of some auction sites. Keep up the good work!! I'm really liking this release. ~Just StopSpazzing~ Visit the UBCD Wiki: http://wiki.ultimatebootcd.com Please check your UBCD ISO MD5 Hash Sum; May prevent issues later on by not having an exact copy.

I'm aware of that, but some older systems won't boot from USB. But as I already noted, systems that can boot from USB become more common everyday, and systems that can't will only get less common. Just a matter of time.

Don't forget you can also edit the disc yourself to add or remove programs as you see fit.

Victor, thank you VERY much for this CD. It is gold.

Since this CD has helped me out so many times, I am going to provide a further http mirror for v5.0b, so that the word is spread.

Everyone:
Please feel free to spread this link so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of this CD.

Thanks again.

I was confused by your post, but I see Beta 11 was recently released. Thanks for hosting.
